The Maca root is a hardy cruciferous vegetable cultivated on the Junin Plateau, an inhospitable region of the Peruvian Andean Mountains at altitudes of approximately 4,100 meters above sea level; higher than any other crop in the world. It is grown by native Quechan Indian farmers. It manages to survive in regions that are little more than barren rock with sub-freezing temperatures each night. It has been domesticated since before the time of the Incas. The part of the plant used for consumption is the root. Native Peruvians have consumed Maca over several thousand years for energy, stamina & fertility. It is the subject of much current research (Maca is recommended for fatigue in Mary Shomon’s New York Times bestseller ‘The Thyroid Diet’).
